So I lived at home with my mother and she had an African Grey parrot that took a liking to me. I lived there pretty much 7 years straight and would always have my parrot with me. I'd always roll her cage into my room when I got home and we'd sleep in same room and I'd roll her out into living room when I'd go out for work. We were companions.
Recently, I moved from home. I made it a habit of going there every couple of weeks to see my mom and my parrot, but circumstances recently have led me to not having a license.
It's been 3 months since I've seen my African Grey parrot and my heart brakes. I know she misses me and I just feel like she's always waiting for me to come home which I won't be able to for a very long time (October I'll have a car again)
It's braking my heart because we were legit companion s for SEVEN years then I disapear and never come back.
Please can anyone relate or comfort me regarding this? I wake up some mornings very depressed and often have trouble falling asleep. It sucks....
I think we can all relate. The bond I have with my grey, Sheeba is very strong. I am her only person she can be friendly with, she bites and chases everyone else. If I leave the room , she calls to me. When I leave the house she makes a big racket for about 10 minutes and then just waits. I have had several other parrots over the years, and I miss all of them. Especially Manfred, my Timneh, who passed away about 5 1/2 years ago. Very traumatic when he died. My wife wanted me to see a psychiatrist.
Is there any way you can have your grey move to where you live? Does your mother have a strong relationship with the grey?
